    I'm saying you need to type up the rules of the game, and send them to me so I can then post them as the first post starting the thread proper.

    Alright, that's what I thought, just wanted to make sure. Will do.

    I have a game suggestion. It is a bit of a take off of Muppet Musicals, but is does not involve musicals, it involves books. The title would be 'Books re-done by Muppets'. There would be no way to win this game, instead, you just keep posting books with Muppet Characters. The rules would be that you would choose a book that you have read or are currently reading and pair up the characters of the book to Muppet characters. Books cannot not be repeated by other people once a book has been done. Is that ok?

    I have an edit. The only time when a book could be done more than once, would be if someone wanted to do it over once and give more detail.

    Ok, I got one. Not sure if there's one already like it, but worth a shot.

    In this game, you have to take a famous quote, or familiar saying, I guess, and you have to blend it in with something Muppets.


    • If you use the same quote as someone else, it has to have a different blend.
    • You must put down the original quote.
    I really thought I'd have more rules. Anyway, there it is.

    I got one!
    Muppet Musical Chairs
    One player starts a song by writing a lyric (Six, My favorite number is six)
    And who ever wants to partipate joins the FIRST SONG ONLY! Then whoever writes the last part of the song, they are out

    IF YOU DON'T PUT IN 2 OR MORE LINES PER SONG (if it is long enough) YOU ARE OUT
  7. The Count

    Sorry, but this has several flaws.

    First off, you yourself admit if the song is long enough. Well, what if the song chosen is so short that it only has five lines?

    Secondly... Asking all people who want to participate within the first song/round of play, that'll just eliminate a lot of potential future players. One thing games here should have is the ability to allow people to join and play at whatever point possible within the game specifics themselves. For instance, Hensonville does allow for people to join up practically almost year round. Yes, applications have to submitted, and those applications have to be approved first, but we allow for people to join throughout almost the entire calendar year.

    Third, if you say that a player's out if they post the last line of the song, that's just going to get rid of a lot of players as well.

    Unless the rules are better structured, I'm going to have to say no to starting a Muppet Musical Chairs thread.
    Hope you understand and have a good day.

    Hello Muppet Fans!

    I have been sitting here reading diffrent things on the fourm and on the web and came up with a wonderful idea for a game.... Muppet/Henson Baseball! It would be a sports RPG type game witch I don't think has ever been done on here. We would use the stranded "backyard" baseball rules and regulations. (without trying to get to technical on what a foul is and things like that)

    We would start out with two teams and on thouse teams there would be a coach.
    Coaches would be the Managers/"owners" and coaches of the team. They would pick the name and color of the team. They would also be able to negotiate with the other coach(s) to trade players.

    Teams can have as many players as it sees fit. All the player has to do to join a team is ask the coach, and give them the position and number they would like to play. If one team has less players then the other teams the coaches can also lend a hand in and play.

    If a player wants to be traded to another team they must talk to their Coach first,and then let the coach talk to the other teams to see what can be done.

    If this sounds like a good and playable game I would need another coach and then i will write up the rules better and send them to Ed.

    I was also thinking about an RPG game that would be really fun called:

    Muppet's Circus!!

    The rules would be simple, any members that would like to be a part of the show with any Muppet/Henson character. Members could change there acts from the various cities, but could not change there persona. Players could also ask another player if they wanted to do an act together.

    To add for elements of "drama" the circus would travel from city to city by train. With several different cars. So in-between cities there could be some interesting banter/play.

    I have an idea that's a bit weird, but it might be fun. I've been playing around with Bad Translator, and was thinking that we could play a game with it. A player would think of a quote, and put it through the translator (setting it to 35 languages, with Random Language Order turned on). Everybody else would guess what the original quote was, and the person who guesses correctly gets to come up with the next quote. Here's a non-Muppet example of a badly translated quote:

    Original quote: Lions and tigers and bears! Oh my!
    Translated: Lions and tigers are less.
    FunnyBear and Bliffenstimmers like this.

    What about bringing an older game back to the spotlight, I was looking at the Muppet Collage Dorms The Next semester thread, and it has not had anyone post in it in years.

    What if we started it over, or maybe even changed it a little? Dose anyone think it would work on the forums today?

    Er, Dwayne... The dorms were replaced/succeeded by Hensonville City.

    I have another Game idea, and I don't know if it would work or not. "Muppet Central has Talent" It would be based on the ever popular Brittan, and America's got Talent, only it would be for the members of Muppet Central.

    As far as the rules, there would be an unsaid number of judges, which would be members, and then whom ever would want to audition during the first round could. The acts could be any number of things singing dancing, joke telling, daredevil stunts and so on. Members who would like to audition could type it out with Muppet characters, or they could post a video of them singing, or a picture of their art work.

    There would be a set amount of rounds, and as the members would progress thought the rounds they would have to come up with different acts to move forward.

    There would be a finale, and there would be a winner named the one with the most, or different talent. They would be able to carry that title for a year, and then when the next season starts they can choice to try and keep there title, or step aside and let someone else.
    That's just the basics of it right now, I have not decided how many rounds there would be, or how many judges as well. If it gets approved I can iron out more detailed rules.

    1. Crack Master VS. the Jim Henson Characters
    2. It's gonna be a story, but every character name (except the Crack Master) will be done with smilies. I know, quite a stretch, huh? In the replies, you can add on to the story. Every few weeks or so, there will be a poll showing what somebody in the story should do. The option that gets the most votes will be used.
    3. It's a continuous game. You just add on to the story!

    Sorry, no, it'd be fraught with far too many complications to keep a straight-through gameplay.

    80's Music Hangman. What you have to do is guess the name of a band, artist, song, or album from the 80's.

    Already said no to that suggestion, we already have Muppet Wheel of Fortune and Name That Muppet Tune.
